To find an alternative to perchlorethylen (commonly known as PERC), a toxic solvent agent banned in France since January 1, 2022, we have carefully selected the efficient cleaning methods that are the most respectful of the environment as well as of our teams’ well-being. An LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) carried out by an external firm allowed us to rely on a quantitative measure of environmental impact to guide our technological choices: 2 techniques including cleaning with liquefied gas and aquaclean.


Already popular in the United States, UK and Denmark, but still unique in France for dry cleaning, this innovative low-temperature method uses gas under high pressure, before liquefying it into a cleaning liquid. Clothes are immersed in liquid gas in a pressurized machine. Thanks to the cold temperature stains crystallize and rise to the surface. At the end of the cycle, there is no longer any need for drying. To optimize gas consumption, we have implemented a process that allows 97% of the product to be reused per cycle by creating a closed loop.

This technique is both very effective and gentle for the most fragile and delicate fabrics and trims such as embroideries, jewelry buttons, pearls, sequins, feathers, etc.


Ideal for knitwear, cotton or denim, this method uses water and products that are currently being ecolabelled. It aims to reduce the environmental impact through short cycles, low temperature and reduced use of detergent. The rotating movement of the drum allows the clothing to be treated delicately, without damaging the fibers. Self-cleaning does not leave chemical residues on cleaned parts and does not use harmful solvents that can cause health problems or damage clothing.

As the CTTN-IREN points out in its document on alternative technologies to PERC, “aqua cleaning, otherwise known as cleaning with water, consists of very gentle washing, intended to take care of delicate garments. This process makes it possible to meet the needs of the laundry business without the risks of pollution and the regulatory constraints associated with the use of solvent.”


Our sustainable approach also involves the well-being and health of our team. Craftsmanship is at the heart of our business and our priority is to offer our team the best working conditions. The use of natural stain removers and the absence of toxic solvents help preserve the health of our employees but also yours.
